I am very sad to report that Chris Dale, chair or TravelWatch NorthWest, passed away very suddenly last Monday.  Chris was with us at TWSW at our zoom seminar just a couple of weeks ago.


Chris Dale

Deansgate at Manchester was provided more space on pavements
Not helpful on buses as the stops are moved away and roadside
NB - from CRPs, some of theirs (North West) cover larger stations

Bryony Chetwode, secretary of TWSW, writes

I remember Chris warmly.  He was always approachable and encouraging, Chrisís passion for keeping people connected was accompanied by a humour which made his voice welcome across the sector.

TWSW had recently enjoyed his company through the webinar series. Having his experience to draw upon was a bonus, and Despite living in Macclesfield, Chris similarly supported us through regular General Meeting attendance.

I too have fond memories of Chris - we have lost one of the best. 

His Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/chris.dale.100483 ) includes a post and follow up of condolences and funeral details.

I will miss seeing Chris at TWSW meetings and elsewhere, and miss his mine of information on buses and sharing of countrywide stories and issues that have helped inform us all.
